On this episode of Gritty Bowmen we tour the Hoyt Factory Head Quarters in Utah and hangout with our friend, Jeremy Eldridge, Hoyt’s Marketing Manager. Aron Snyder couldn’t make this trip so Jordan Harbertson of MTN OPS fulfilled the co-host role in Aron’s absence. I’m excited to share this podcast. Hoyt has been around for nearly 100 years. They have a rich history and a promising future. This year’s Hoyt Defiant Bow is among the best I’ve ever shot and seeing the behind the scenes engineering and manufacturing of this bow only made it more impressive. It’s a great time to be a bow hunter. Compound bow technology is at an all time high. The accuracy and effectiveness of today’s equipment is truly amazing. The information about how to shoot and hunt is only a keyboard or a smartphone away and more and more people are getting into archery every day. With movies like Hunger Games with Katniss and her Hoyt Buffalo, Avengers with Hawkeye and Merida from Disney’s Brave, archery and bowhunting is in the spotlight in a positive and inspiring way. And whether you shoot Hoyt or not check out Hoyt’s #IAmDefiant videos on YouTube. You’ll see some inspiring people with some inspiring messages.
